Filippiada, Greece in August 2016

Offered the opportunity to work in a Greek refugee camp with CalAid over the summer of 2016. While managing a team of teachers delivering youth provision in Filippiada we had the opportunity to visit two other Greek refugee camps and two squatted buildings in Athens housing refugees. We learnt a lot about the Greek response to the ‘refugees crisis’ but also understood more of the refugee experience living within organised camps.
